  • CSX Al - Al's Train Page. I started my layout after my son at the age of two received a MTH R-T-R starter train set for Christmas. This was in 2003 . This re-kindled my interest in model RR I had as a kid. I had HO scale as a kid and never really got that into a layout, I think due to the size. In about two weeks time after my son received his train, I started building this layout for him (but right now, mostly for me. :-)

  • Michael Luczak - The Great Northern Pacific Railroad in O Scale. This web page will document my O scale model railroad. I started to build this layout on February 5, 2001. It is my first layout. It is a small layout for O scale, but more than adequate for one person to handle.

All accessories and the two trolleys can be operated with buttons on the front edge of the table.

  • TexasEd - In April of 1997 I began construction of my layout. Using 2'x4' and 4'x4' modules I constructed a flat surface layout that is 8'x16'. This layout occupies half of my two-car garage. I left one 2'x4' module out of the layout for a pop-up hole for access to the back half of the layout. After laying the two concentric mainlines with minimum diameter curves of 80" and 72" using Gargraves flex track. I began plans for a 3rd loop consisting of a figure eight that went up to a second l evel. This loop has minimum diameter curves of 54".
